Will Wilson is the DAM’s artist-in-residence for March. Will is a photographer who creates tintype portraits as part of his current project, “Critical Indigenous Photographic Exchange.”
Visit the photography gallery on level seven of the North Building, where a one-week only, pop-up exhibit will be on view. The gallery will feature a selection of the prints he made in the artist-in-residence studio during his week on-site, when he led artist demonstrations and created visitors' tintype portraits.
The exhibit opens during Untitled #55 (Bound) on March 29, the day it is installed, and runs through April 7.
Wilson challenges classic photographic portraiture of Native Americans, such as work by Edward S. Curtis. Utilizing a combination of historic tintype and contemporary digital processes, Will creates documents that reposition the indigenous image through a photographic exchange with his sitters.
Free with museum general admission. No reservations required.
